Start Over: Lawyers for accused serial killer Anthony Sowell want jurors thrown out

19 Action News has found yet another move that could delay the trial for accused serial killer Anthony Sowell.

Defense lawyers want a thousand possible jurors thrown out--and jury selection hasn't even started.

Anthony Sowell has been charged with the murders of 11 women in the Cleveland area.

Cuyahoga County court recently sent out notices to a thousand possible jurors for Sowell's trial next month.

Sowell attorneys are saying "start over" because the judge already excused a few jurors on his own.

Meanwhile, another hearing has been set for next week.
